Screen Education held 3 sessions at the Ohio Educational Technology Conference in Columbus, OH, February 11-13.
The first session, titled How A Digital Detox Benefits Young People, which was co-presented by Michael Mercier, President, with Screen Education's research partner Garrett Munro of Hiram College, was based upon the 7 research studies Screen Education and Mr. Munro combined had conducted with teens and college students as they experienced a digital detox during camping trips and while attending summer camps.
In the session titled Helping Students Address The Mental Health Effects of Social Media Mr. Mercier presented an approach that schools can use to educate students on how to use social media more consciously, more civilly, and for less time each day.
In the session Three Paradigm-Shifting Ideas To Kickstart Your School's Digital Wellness Culture we presented 3 new breakthrough ideas that can help schools boldly launch a new digital wellness school culture.
